We hosted another installment of our ever popular Bookseller Book Chat from home. Joining Northshire Live were Saratoga booksellers Mike Hare and Kirstin Swartz and new childrens' bookseller from our Manchester Center store Nadja Tiktinsky! Take a look at the books they suggested and that the audience discussed.
Last night on August 6th, we hosted another meeting of one of our most popular recurring events--the Bookseller Bookchat. This time we had the pleasure of hosting Saratoga booksellers Cassidy Washburn and Kirstin Swartz and Northshire adult book buyer Stan Hynds. They shared these recent favorite books, and then we talked about even more books!
The definitive monograph on the most personable of modernist painters, Paul Klee: Life and Work, is back in print. This book presents both a biography and the most generous selection of Klee’s tender, magical paintings and drawings. In clear chronological groupings from his association with Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc’s Der Blaue Reiter group, to his core faculty position at the Bauhaus, to his branding as a “degenerate artist” by the Nazis, the full scope of Klee's art and life are methodically presented. I’ve always been enchanted by magical figurative paintings like Fish Magic and The Twittering Machine, but with this book I developed a new appreciation for his distinctly personal brand of abstraction. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
Last night on June 10th, Northshire Live hosted the second--and wildly popular--bookseller book chat as a virtual event. Joe Michon-Huneau from the Manchester, VT store and Mike Hare and Rachel Person both from the Saratoga Springs, NY store all shared some book recommendations--old favorites as relevant today as ever, recent releases, and a few forthcoming books!
